6. Billing, Plan Modifications and Payments
6.1 Fees - You will pay all fees specified in Order Forms and Our Service Plans. Fees consist of a (combination of) (i) fixed fees for Services and Third-Party Services subscriptions purchased, charged independent of actual usage, and (ii) additional fees for Services and Third-Party Services based on actual usage (volume), as measured by Our systems and that of the relevant providers of Third-Party Services. Payment obligations are non-cancelable and advance fixed fees paid are non-refundable and quantities or service levels purchased cannot be decreased during the relevant subscription term.
6.2 Invoicing and Payment - You will provide Us with valid and updated credit card information, (SEPA) direct debit authorization, or a valid purchase order or alternative document reasonably acceptable to Us. If You provide credit card information to Us, You authorize Us to charge such credit card for all Purchased Services used by You, as per the Service Plans and any separate Order Forms for the initial Subscription Term and any renewal Subscription Term(s) as set forth in Section 13.2 (Term of Purchased Subscriptions). Such charges shall be made in advance, either monthly, annually or in accordance with any different billing frequency stated in the applicable Order Form or Service Plan. If the Order Form or Service Plan specifies that payment will be by a method other than a credit card or (SEPA) direct debit, We will invoice You in advance and otherwise in accordance with the relevant Order Form or Service Plan. Unless otherwise stated in the Order Form or Service Plan, invoiced charges are due net 30 days from the invoice date. You are responsible for providing complete and accurate billing and contact information to Us and notifying Us of any changes to such information.
6.3 Advance Payment - Should We at any time have any doubts about Your creditworthiness, We are entitled, prior to any (further) performance of the Services, to require that You make an advance payment of a part or the whole of the agreed price and/or require some other kind of guarantee. Advance payments are not refundable.
6.4 Overdue Charges - If any invoiced amount is not received by Us by the due date, then without limiting Our rights or remedies, (a) those charges may accrue late interest at the rate of 1.5% of the outstanding balance per month, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower, and/or (b) We may condition future subscription renewals and Order Forms on payment terms shorter than those specified in Section 6.2 (Invoicing and Payment).
6.5 Suspension of Service and Acceleration - If any amount owing by You under this or any other agreement for Our services is 30 or more days overdue (or 10 or more days overdue in the case of amounts You have authorized Us to charge to Your credit card), We may, without limiting Our other rights and remedies, accelerate Your unpaid fee obligations under such agreements so that all such obligations become immediately due and payable, and suspend Our services to You until such amounts are paid in full. Other than for customers paying by credit card or (SEPA) direct debit whose payment has been declined, We will give You at least 10 days' prior notice that Your account is overdue, in accordance with Section 14.2 (Manner of Giving Notice) for billing notices, before suspending services to You. Likewise, if You terminate all or part of the Agreement before the end of the Subscription Term, all outstanding fees for the remainder of the Subscription Term and for any other Services become immediately due and payable, without the need to serve any notice of default. In the event no termination fee is agreed upon in advance, You will pay to Us at once an amount that equals the monthly fee We received in the month prior to the termination by You, times the remaining months of the Subscription Term.
6.6 Payment Disputes - We will not exercise Our rights under Section 6.4 (Overdue Charges) or 6.5 (Suspension of Service and Acceleration) above if You are disputing the applicable charges reasonably and in good faith and are cooperating diligently to resolve the dispute.

If We have the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which You are responsible under this Section 6.7, We will invoice You and You will pay that amount unless You provide Us with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. For clarity, We are solely responsible for taxes assessable against Us based on Our income, property and employees.
